Context
The US hasn’t defaulted on its debt ever and Republicans and Democrats say that they don’t wish to face that situation now. However, with differences growing between Republicans and Democrats on how to tackle the deficit, the unimaginable is being considered out of the blue. The US government currently borrows around 42 cents of each dollar it is spending.
